This is a series we created and posted on the Facebook earlier this year. The videos cover some of the most common (and most catastrophic) errors we see in developing weightlifters. The videos provide a brief overview of the problem, why it happens, and one approach to fixing it. If you'd like help troubleshooting your technique errors, please contact us.

Common error #2: Improper start position
Common error #3: Bar travelling away from your body
Common error #4: Not using your legs properly
Common error #5: Poor or improper extension
